Consider the EG Holburn. Looks similar to the Arca but cheaper. I got mine from Leffot for maybe $4-500. It's a glued sole but for a shoe used a couple times a year it's not bad. You might have to special order it. http://leffot.com/edward-green-holborn-black-patent/
I don't think it's a big deal that the Force is used as deux ex machina. The Ancient Greeks used deux ex machina in their tragedies to make the impossible happen, thousands of years ago.
Interesting BBC program about why we wear ties. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p03999kq#play
Yes. But I'm trying to pre-empt the possible question of "Can an Italian making a shirt in Italy be French?" Particularly given the whole "Is Eidos Italian" episode.
They sell Mast Brothers at Whole Foods, very expensive for what it is. For $10 per bar, I much prefer the ones from Alain Ducasse's Le Chocolat. Unfortunately they don't ship the US. I bought 200 euros worth of chocolate the last time I was in Paris. http://www.lechocolat-alainducasse.com/en/chocolate-bar
My shirts from Mary that I ordered in the summer finally arrived. Apparently she has left Paris but to me her shirt style is very French, particularly the shirt sleeve, cuff and tail
The Agnelli tweed looks like the typical drapey Steed with wasp waist to me. It looks to be a either a 3 roll 2.5 or a 3 roll 2 which hasn't settled yet. Original pics here. https://mobile.twitter.com/SteedTailors/status/677192026820079616
Anyone of you have experience with the Devialet Phantom? Is it really that good or just hype? Thanks.
I can't believe I am still running my summer tires. I usually switch to winters around thanksgiving. Looks like it'll be 60 degrees until Christmas at least.
Rafel is a shearling maker in NYC. I chose them because they make on site so adjustments to the canvas are easier. For example, there was an issue with the shape of the right arm hole and the maker came downstairs to work out the adjustments.http://www.rafelshearling.com/mens-jackets/You are right their designs are pretty basic. I came in with an idea for a coat based on a Nepenthes design and it evolved from there.
